On my laptop I have a very simple but cool little DVB-T digital TV tuner (update as of the 7th of May 2010, I no longer use this product but I still have it here so I will still be able to help people with this product)
Here is some information about it.
A picture of the unit and its packaging.
Plugged into the side of my laptop.
Below is a capture of the supplied Total media software and the EPG finally working here in Australia (for free I might add).
The image below is of the unit with no cover.
As in the image below the latest drivers for the MobiDTV Pro are version 126.96.36.199 and work perfectly on all version of windows including 64bit version.
Windows device manager installs the unit as an AF9015 BDA Device.
The latest Total Media that ships with the Pro now requires a cd key which is located on the white CD sleeve.
The only problem with the latest Total Media is that it has this small advertising bar down near the system tray.
To get rid of it just click on the small >> arrows on the right of the bar and select Don’t show this window any more.
The below message will appear so just click on Yes.
The next item will appear, again click OK.
This version ot Total Media is188.8.131.52
There is a few new features like the Burn to disc item and a new section where you can design a fancey menu for your DVD’s.
The burn to disc item is where all the editing takes place and you can import or use your recorded TV shows and split them into chapters etc.
- Linux information and drivers etc are located here and more information in there wiki here.
- The MobiDTV Pro uses an AF9015N1 chipset made by these guys direct link to the actual chipset page is here
- Afatech-af9015-driver-184.108.40.206.WHQL.zip driver provided Afatech, with this driver you can actually see the files that are used (ie, .inf, .sys etc files)
- This driver is provided by the developer of the actual unit Dexatech (no V-Gear didn’t make this hardware) MobiDTVPRO_v220.127.116.11_2XV_32_64_Setup.zip
- If you get a patch error with this driver just download the first driver, go into the device manager and manually point it to the extracted drivers.
- Any audio and video related problems can normally be fixed by installing the latest Direct X runtime files located here (Picture/video are fine but no sound)

Or you can download the Media player 9 codecs located here (on my mediafire account) this will fix most display related and audio problems within totalmedia itself, it requires these codecs in order to work correctly, I am surprised that these codes aren’t installed or supplied with totalmedia. Also if you get an error when you run totalmedia saying that it requires media player 9 or above it is nothing to do with the version of media player that is installed which is normally version 11 on XP and Vista and version 12 on Windows 7 machines it wants the codecs from version 9 which aren’t included with newer versions, this media player 9 codec pack wont install media player 9 it only installs a couple of codecs.
